Technical analysis provider ChartLab adds sector exposure feature

Enhancements help point out both sector risk and specific stocks needing another look

ChartLabPro.com has integrated its Sector Exposure Diagnostics Solution into their Pro platform.

For those unfamiliar the ChartLab folks are providers of quantitative investment management solutions for both retail and institutional investors and advisers (their subscribers include asset management firms, broker-dealers, institutional traders as well as individual investors).

I suspect this will be of most interest to those active-trading advisers that include technical analysis in their daily analytical repertoire.

In a nutshell this enhancement should better identify which sectors in their investors' portfolios they should increase or reduce exposure to based on ChartLab's proprietary algorithm.

There is a 30-day free trial and an annual subscription currently costs $99.95.

"But Jan. 1st [2013] that is going to $149.95 based on the success

of the algorithm," wrote The Chart Lab LLC's president and co-founder Brett Golden in an e-mail.

In addition to sector exposure this new feature also points to specific stocks within a sector and should be able to help subscribers determine concentration risk as well.
